More violence erupted at a campaign rally for Donald Trump last night as a supporter of Trump’s slapped a protester in the face.
Instead of attempting to stop the violence, Trump called the protester out, comparing him to ISIS.
From the New York Daily News:
The attacker, who was only identified as “Mike,” said he pounced on the protester because “he was yelling in my face.”
“I have my personal rights and my personal space,” he told the Albany Times-Union after the rally. “They’re going to start yelling about some bulls–t, I’ll snatch your ass up.”
Video of the mid-event attack showed Mike and the demonstrator facing each other — apparently arguing — as another audience member stood between the two. After a tense standoff, Mike lunged at the protester and smacked him in the face twice.
The protester was eventually removed from the rally at the Times Union Center.
Of the protester, Trump said, “This is what’s happening on the border. This is what’s happening with ISIS. This is what’s happening to our country, and we can’t let it happen. We’ve got to take our country back, folks.”
That’s right folks – a man yelling “Boo!” is comparable to ISIS. Got it?
